Concert Synopsis

The Bach Choir’s annual tradition of performing Bach’s St Matthew Passion in English dates back to 1930.  Today’s audiences continue to appreciate the relevance and immediacy of the performances.  The period instrument ensemble Florilegium will give the performance a particularly authentic feel.
